Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin

Kawhi Leonard led the Clippers to a 119-99 win over the Grizzlies on Friday, finishing with 30 points (8-of-13 FGs, 11-of-11 FTs), nine rebounds, seven assists, one block and three triples in 35 minutes. The Clippers were embarrassed by this same team on Thursday so Kawhi took matters into his own hands tonight. He had the highlight of the night with this emphatic dunk (link below), and he's now scored at least 29 points in six of his last seven games. He's climbing the MVP ladder and has a tough test coming up against the Bucks on Sunday.

Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Jayson Tatum powered the Celtics to a 111-110 win over the Wizards on Sunday with 31 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three triples, three steals and four turnovers in 39 minutes. Tatum was held to just nine points on 4-of-18 shooting his last time out, but he was able to get things back on track today against one of the worst defensive teams in the league, finishing 12-of-22 from the floor and 4-of-4 from the stripe. Tatum was mired in a brutal shooting funk through Black History Month, connecting on just 38.6% of his FGA, but hopefully, tonight’s game is a sign that he’s ready to turn the corner.
